Are Social Relativists Conservatives?


Ann Coulter - Homocon

I am a huge Ann Coulter fan. I find it humorous the she slices and dices Liberals with her Conservative voice. I was very disappointed a while back when Coulter accepted to be the key note speaker at a GOProud conference. GOProud asserts it is a Conservative/Republican crowd. The problem I have with GOProud is their focus is the ungodly social value of homosexuality.

 

If I had any doubts earlier about Coulter’s Conservatism I have none now. Coulter is joining GOProud’s Board of Advisors. This indicates that Coulter definitely is not a Social Conservative values kind of gal. I was pointed toward a WND article in which Coulter defends the identity of normal of homosexual Conservatives.

 

“…I speak to a lot of groups and do not endorse them. I speak at Harvard and I certainly don’t endorse their views. I’ve spoken to Democratic groups and liberal Republican groups that loooove abortion. The main thing I do is speak on college campuses, which is about the equivalent of speaking at an al-Qaida conference. I’m sure I agree with GOProud more than I do with at least half of my college audiences. But in any event, giving a speech is not an endorsement of every position held by the people I’m speaking to.”

 

 

She said, “If you’re born gay, why would you be liberal? Are you born liberal? Gays are a demographic group that have one of the highest incomes in America, they are victims of crimes. The Muslims don’t think too highly of them. So, you know, basically the entire Republican platform is fighting the same causes any sane gay person should care about, and the entire Democratic platform is sucking up to soccer moms and women who want abortions.

 

“What do you care about that for, gay person. Abortion isn’t at the top of your list, I’m guessing. And, by the way, as soon as liberals find a gay gene, guess who’s going to get aborted? So I think all gays who are born gay are overwhelmingly conservative, maybe apolitical. And all those angry gays, causing trouble for everybody, I don’t even think they were born gay. I think they just are angry at their fathers,” she said.

 

If you are a Social Conservative Christian Right kind of person as I am, you have to see these Coulter quotes are a contradiction to Conservative-Family values. As a good Capitalist Conservative Coulter points out that many homosexuals are in the upper economic bracket of America. Capitalism is good but Capitalism without moral principle will ultimately end Capitalism. “Ending Capitalism” may sound like sweeping hyperbole; however it is Christian morality that made America good. Diluting Christian morality with Secular Humanist Moral Relativity will end America’s goodness. Even though I enjoy Coulter’s slicing political humor at Leftist’s expense, I am going to have to rethink my support for her.

 

Ann Coulter is definitely not a trend setter among Conservatives validating homosexuality as a normal lifestyle. Another WND article dated January 2011 lists a handful of Conservatives that are a part of the GOProud advisory board:

 

Andrew Breitbart

 

Margaret Hoover

 

Grover Norquist

 

Tammy Bruce (Bruce has been a homosexual before any Conservative credentials. She has thought of herself as a Democrat probably because of Social Liberalism.)

  1. ” Christian morality that made America good”…no it is morality and ethics (primarily Aristotelian ethics) that made America great. Yes a vast portion of this was because of a strong Judeo-Christian strain, but it was not the only source of morality in American history. And I find it utterly illogical that you can defend capitalism which calls for letting people do whatever they want so long as it does not hurt anyone else and yet want to decry what people do in their private lives.

    1. Crisap you are remarkably deceived if you think Aristotelian ethics is the source of America’s goodness. Read the letters and documents of the Founding Fathers. Even those Founding Fathers classified as Deists acknowledged that the morals of the Christian faith is the foundation for good laws. Certainly there was an acknowledgment to Platonic/Aristotelian philosophy; however the homage was to the nature (i.e. natural law) and nature’s Creator (the Judeo-Christian God of the Old and New Testament.

  2. I have read the Founding Fathers quite extensively, but the Deism and Enlightenment principles they believed in had their origins in the works of St. Thomas Aquinas who showed that the laws of man, laws of nature, and laws of God are related and discoverable through reason. This was a radical concept to the Christian world, which before had been operating to a great deal on faith in the face of reason, as opposed to faith bolstered by reason. And Aquinas only came to these ideas by infusing the works and ideas of Aristotle into Christianity. With the ideas of Aristotle/Aquinas there would be no Enlightenment and thus no deist principles. Most of the virtues they espoused are found more readily in the Nichomachean Ethic than in the Testaments. And as many deists and several of the founders (most notably Adams, Jefferson, and Franklin) stated that while they agreed with the ethical teachings of Jesus, they doubted that he was divine, it not exactly accurate to say that all the founders believed in the Judeo-Christian vision of God, even though they all did believe in a God. I’m not deny the strong Judeo-Christan influence on the Founders or America, but it is the Ariostelian/Thomist branch of that religion that provided the ethical structure for their success. Has Aquinas never infused these belief then it is quite possible that the Augustinian branch of devotion against reason would have continued, which did not stress the intellectual and ethical virtue be on par with Paul’s virtue of faith, hope, and charity…thus no Enlightenment, no deists, no Founders, no America. I think I am justified in giving Aristotle credit for being the first to organize and justify the ideas that led to America’s success.

    1. I can yield to the Aristotle connection; nonetheless American Deists (which were a bit more Christian oriented than European Deists) were still highly influenced by the morality of Judeo-Christianity. The Founding Fathers that were Deists would have rejected homosexuality as an ungodly effrontery that would debase the new nation of the USA. The morality of Christianity was essential to the Founding Fathers as a foundation to a good society.
